I'll just call him Drago, because he sounds Russian and I'll never spell that name.
I'll just call him Drago, because he sounds Russian and I'll never spell that name.
We'll call him Andre Y.
Remember, Drago is a supporting character in a fantastic movie--and thus makes everyone happy.
I think fantastic is an understatement. It is a close fight between Rocky IV and Roadhouse for the best movie of all time.
Did Roadhouse singlehandedly end the Cold War?
....I'll just call him Blue.
Anyone else super excited about The Expendables?
This could be the movie to end all others.
Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Randy Couture, Steve Austin and Terry Crews. The testosterone to acting skill ratio is exceedingly high in this movie.
they couldn't fit Van Damm in this movie somewhere......

1. Anyone know how to pronounce his name?
2. TOB - what is your avatar supposed to be?
If I'm not mistaken. For some reason it reminds me of the song 'Fearless'.
That's a song on the album.
Can't answer #1, lol.
#2 - it's the album cover of Pink Floyd's Meddle.
I am laughably ignorant on many pop-culture issues.
Best Floyd album, bar none.
It depends on how Americanized his family pronounces his name, but it's really not that difficult. Just take it one syllable at a time.
I'd say Uretra (yes like that) Go(!) Hiena
Where do you get the second "r" in "Uretra"?
My guess is Yer-eet'-a-go-yay'-nah.
If I knew how to HTML a diphthong or a schwa, the diphthong would go between the "go" and the "yay" and the schwa would be in place of the "ah" in the last syllable.
Then again, I could be completely wrong.
In my head I've been saying "eer-oo-RET-a-goy-EN-a" which is probably way off, but it keeps my head from asploding.
In my head, I don't actually read it, in order to not feel bad about my intelligence
Maybe you're the dipthong
ureter + urethra? Seriously. Ha.
My guess: EE-roo-retta-goy-EEna.
If so, then it isn't so tough--is completely phonetic
I don’t understand why it is so hard for people to pronounce.

One thing that he likes and most other kids don't like from the South is the cold weather. We beat USC for sure on that one.
And another word that rhymes with paid...
Mmm... USC Cheerleaders...
Coveting thy opposing teams' ladies lately, are we?
Naw, not all. Just the curly haired one on the right.
Edit, after a second look, she doesn't have curly hair. SAD PANDA.
IMHE, the blonde second from the right > "curly" blonde on the right
Curly hair is my weakness. So hot.
We also don't have a d-bag head coach, so +2 for u of m.
Some people might disagree with you on that point.
It's easier for all of us if you click "Reply to comment."
Wouldn't waste your time on here questioning RR's character.. Obviously too many mgobloggers don't know how to face reality
reality: Drew Sharp says it, it must be true
Yep, since I definitely brought up Drew Sharp.. Oh wait
what is wrong with Rodriguez's character?
did he call your wife a slut or something?
Apparently you've missed out on the last 2 years of Michigan football, and I'm not referring to his piss poor W-L record
what's wrong with his character? give me an example, a link, something other than "mgoblue1 says"
I suppose NCAA allegations are nothing, right. Or bringing in a kid with multiple criminal problems. Or the fiasco of him leaving WVU (and no, not all of the fault there falls upon WVU).
kindly requests that you go to bed.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to hit "reply" and remove all doubt.
What a witty response. I suppose you think Rodriguez is the perfect fit for Michigan football, too?
Answer the Mealer question first: if RR's such a dick, why does that family like him so much?
Just stop plz.
I think the last couple of years have shown that regardless of RichRod's long-term prospects, in the short term he wasn't an ideal fit.
But I do think that some people seem to enjoy proving the adage that those who speak don't know, and those who know don't speak.
It's easy to sit back and lob grenades at a guy when he's down. Lord knows that they're doing that in East Lansing and Columbus. And to call a guy who (I'm presuming) you've never met a d-bag of low moral character based on information gleaned 3rd-hand from the internet, puts you on par with the "durr, DickRod and scUM suck" crowd.
I've never met RichRod. I can't say what kind of person he is. You've never met RichRod. Go to bed.
It's also easy to sit back and call a guy a saint who you've never met. You can't have it both ways. Character and everything aside, and we've talked about it a million times on here, if he wins all will be forgiven. If not he may be on his way out or on a very short leash for the following year.
To be fair people could point to Pete Carrol and how he took that kid in who was terminally ill and made him part of the team. There was a piece on it during Gameday at some point last season. Pete has no respect on this board. This guy has a legit beef with what he is saying. Just because you disagree I guess means that it's fair to pile on.
In fact, I explicitly said that I've never met RichRod, so I can't say what kind of person he is.
I thought my point was pretty clear. If the poster is going to claim that RichRod has low moral character, that's his right. But he'd better trot out more than a couple of straw men and a discredited story about some shredded documents in West Virginia...
Dude went about it all wrong but his frustration is understandable. The timing of it is not. If we start the season off on the wrong foot then it will probably be like this everyday. I doubt we will, though.
His frustration with the team getting the unholy hell kicked out of it is understandable. Angry Michigan 2009 Hating God knows I've thrown a few profane tirades to the winds. But to make it a personal character attack takes this into the 'jackass' category.
I agree with you on that one. I think we've all been there throwing things at the tv or screaming in frustration in the Big House. In reality you could blame the players his first two years. It was well known that there was dissension from a multitude of players his first year. That makes it pretty hard to win when the guys who are playing for you don't believe in you either.
HAHAHA! I'm watching American Dad and the mom just said she was going to SeaWorld to punch a dolphin. She'll have Rosenberg as company.
I held the door for him once at South Quad while he was on his way to athletes dining room. He said thank you.
BOOM ANECDOTED. Case closed.
Edit: booo no idea how this got replied to your comment. It was supposed to go somewhere else.
I wasn't aware that one good deed replaces a trend of questionable behavior. Pacman, Feagin, Demar, leaving WVU, practice times, etc...
Pacman didn't have problems until the NFL. In fact RR kept him clean at WVU (same goes for Chris Henry, if you want to go there). Leaving a job for a destination you consider a step up is part of the business, get over it.
And the way he left WVU was such a smooth process.
When he shredded all of the players' financial records, grade records, and scholarship records. Of which there was only one copy. Which the University kept in RichRod's office. In hard copy.
I heard he also shredded their birth certificates, passports, and childhood artwork.
Or refusing to pay the buyout, which was IN HIS CONTRACT
Yeah, that was the team of Michigan lawyers, not Rich Rod.
Oh, my bad. Not Rodriguez's fault at all. Wasn't his decision to not pay the buyout or anything.
Hey, the first factual correct statement you've made on this thread! Give yourself a pat on the back.
Hey mgoblue1, its God...he says YOU SUCK.
Can you stop talking my neg button is over heating because of you
You must feel like a badass
Lloyd had players beating up nerds for no reason and masturbating into windows. Lloyd is obviously a sexual deviant.
Awesome avatar and I knew I saw Lloyd walking out of that sex rehab facility with Tiger.
Lloyd also recruited multiple players with alcohol offenses. Lloyd must be an alcoholic!
Dorsey was arrested for breaking and entering. That is one event. Plus he was acquitted, so doesn't even count. Feagin had no problems before coming to U-M with the law.
Oh sorry man! I didn't know Dorsey's problems were only from ONE event. Breaking and entering. No big deal. Come on up to the University of Michigan
He was ACQUITTED, so he didn't get convicted of a crime. And if you would kindly read your last post, you said multiple crimes. I see no multiple crimes.
"Or bringing in a kid with multiple criminal problems".... Never mentioned convictions... Plenty of people are never convicted, doesn't make it right to bring him into U-M just because he can play football
You said multiple criminal problems, find me a guy he brought in with MULTIPLE criminal problems.
The only way your attack here even approaches legitimacy is if you make the case that Rodriguez harmfully prioritizes W/L over the moral direction of players under his wing. But do you have any evidence at all (*ANY*) that Rodriguez is at all apathetic about the moral behavior of players while they're under his wing? This is an entirely different question than that of whether 2nd chances are warranted for juvenile offenders.
Kids do lots of stupid and illegal dumb shit. I'm sure you did your fair share of illegal stuff in high school, but didn't get caught.
Yea, and LC NEVER brought any kids into UM with questionable pasts. Hilarious how you dicks want to string RR up by his short hairs for recruiting demar dorsey, while forgetting all the legal troubles UM players have had in the past under LC.
By "multiple criminal problems" you must mean Pat Lazear, honor student at West Virginia. What a dick you have to be to give a kid a second chance. He'd be better off without a degree, no doubt about that.
Nope. By multiple criminal problems I certainly meant Mr. Demar Dorsey
Ah, of course. And I'm sure you know for a fact that Dorsey, unlike Lazear, is a lost cause. So if Dorsey is hopeless, what's your explanation for Lazear, then?
And I suppose you're equally upset over the NCAA violations Lloyd Carr committed? (See: Marcus Ray, Artis Chambers and - in all likelihood - Charles Woodson.) And I can't imagine how distraught you must have been over the many players who were arrested under Lloyd's watch. (Remember K-Martgate? The stripper purse-snatching shenanigans? The St. Patrick's Day Nerd Roundup?) Or do you only get mad when these things happen under the watch of a coach with a Southern accent?
Pity, but I predict your post will be never be responded to by the RR haters.....it seems they don't like factual counterarguments.
It's very difficult to get mad or think negatively about Lloyd because he was such an amazing guy. Very seldom are there old coaches that people truly hate. Maybe Bowden but look at JoePa. It's always easier to complain about the young ruffians and their RAWK music.
Die in a fire.
Edit: this didn't thread correctly.
the fact that RR has more NCAA allegations to his name than wins in the recent past. How are those maize colored glasses treating you?
sad that I will probably get neg-banged for this too
2005- 11 wins
2006- 11 wins
2007- 10 wins
2008- 3 wins
2009- 5 wins
So unless RR has 40 NCAA allegations to his name, I find your claim highly offensive.
How about those last 2 years... Impressive
the claim any less true? Didn't think so.
because up until 2007 we rarely if ever had NCAA accusations surrounding the football team. We were a respected program in 49 states and not the laughing stock that we are now.
Outside of Columbus and EL, I'm pretty sure most think better times are ahead.
And still, 5 potential violations =/= 40 wins.
I would think that outside of Ann Arbor, most think that the Michigan football program is a laughing stock
Most people are stupid. See 'mgoblue1' for a good example.
Or most people know when to take off their maize glasses and face reality
is it too soon for a nomination for blog meltdown of the year?
this is a pretty good one.
Too early to nominate a sure-fire front-runner? Absolutely not.
This is great. First we had a user named Zeke melt down last night. Now we have these two guys here. It's been a busy weekend for trolls.
That was some pretty ridicouls comments he made. Any idea what started that meltdown? But +1 to you sir for pointing that out.
Most of the comments he made were uncalled for, and offensive. He has to get banned for that.
I MISSED the Zeke meltdown??? I was the first one to accuse him of having multiple accounts days ago!! Doggone it, I was really looking forward to that one.
EDIT: This wasn't where I replied.
Yeah, the reality that Rich Rod has been a successful coach everywhere else he has been a coach? The reality that Carr stopped recruiting and Rich Rod had a talent depleted team when he took over? The reality that Rich Rod has been recruiting great kids, but they are still really young? The reality that there has been no stability in the DC position? Or the reality that trolls get to pick and choose what 'facts' that talk about?
if you think our program is a laughing stock, then why don't you go sit on the outside and laugh? The University of Michigan doesn't need people like you. If you don't have pride in our program than shut up and leave. To quote Yost,
"True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise --- the other, loyalty."
— Fielding Yost
you would know that this really isn't the case, except with the most vitriolic of the OSU/MSU fanbases and they pretty much sound just like you. Ignorant, ill-informed and full of spite.
Most reasonable fans of other programs have some recognition of what is being built at UM and they see a day coming, pretty soon, where we will once again be a game that they look forward to with a great amount of trepidation. At least the ones I know. I grew up an M fan in east lansing, my Mother is from Columbus and went to UM and her entire side of the family are rabid OSU fans. I know a LOT of OSU/MSU fans and nearly ALL of them have a more reasonable opinion of RR than you do.
The sorry, pathetic fact is that your measly little sense of self-worth is too wrapped up in the success of the UM football program and therefore you are suffering a crisis of identity, causing you to spend most of your time worrying what the fans of other programs think of Michigan football. Grow some stones you little byatch and support your program when they need you the most, instead of puking and mewling and turning on the program when it has given you so much in the past (apparently some sense of self-worth that you now dearly miss). I'll bet you are the type of person that would boo a bunch of kids giving it their all, am I right? You are a disgrace as a fan. Did you ever stop to consider that you, and those of your ilk, are part of the problem?
If you can't man up and grow a pair to stand behind 'your team', then at least spawn a few brain cells and start getting a little informed about things. Until then, you just sound like a screeching monkey, hurling your feces indiscriminately at a world outside his cage that frustrates him b/c because he doesn't possess the ability to comprehend the world around him.
Simple things for you to understand:
-highest team GPA in ? years aftere RR took over? How do explain that from a scumbag coach that recuits criminals?
-Mealer family/Brock adoption, you can call it BS, but it just ain't so. If it were PR only, I should think he would milk it, which he/they don't. They would also be able to get PR by doing FAr less, instead, they keep their mouth shut and continue to go the extra mile with Brock. Fuck you for suggesting otherwise. You must lead a petty, bitter, small existance somewhere. Think about yourself much?
-one of your precious 'sanctions' besmirching M is for over-monitoring class attendance in the summer...so, yeah, I'll take it and am pretty OK with that. Only a coach w/o character would be overly concerned with the academic status of his players.
-Everyone who has actually met RR and had some experience with him echo the 'nice guy' sentiment, HS coaches, parents of recruits, non-jihadist journalists, etc. But, i guess you would know better because....
-Feagin: player does something very stupid and runs afoul of the law, same day this is discovered he is off the team. So where do you point a finger at RR for that? Carr kept people around for trangressions far worse than that...many times. I have met and love Lloyd Carr and everything he meant to M, but he, nor any other coach, is perfect or can control every aspect of the players' lives.
-Cissoko: player at a position of dire need, perhaps not having a stellar year performance-wise, but still the best option on the field with future potential....gets into some trouble and is also gone. You see a pattern here that is not not evident at another program slighly north of Ann Arbor whose fans opinions matter so much to you?
-Dorsey: it must be nice to have grown up like you and be perfect. Eat shit for suggesting that this kid doesn't deserve a chance. I had trouble with the law as a teenager, as did many of my friends. i went to UM, upstanding citizen now. I would echo previous comments regarding the player (Lazear) RR recruited at WVU who had some previous legal issues. RR turned him into an honor student in college....amazing that he can apparently impart character to his players, while having none of his own.
-Pacman, Henry: again as pointed out in other comments, kept in check under RR, no issues at WVU, so now he is responsible for the actions of players after they leave WVU and go to the NFL?
-FYI - the buyout clause wasn't paid at the direction of UM and their attorneys as they posited that terms of his contract were unmet by WVU....have you ever worked in business, with something like $2.5M at stake and lawyers on retainer, you always take a shot, that is just the way things work. You never know if during the discovery phase of the trial you will hit on something that would make the WVU attorneys question a verdict and look to settle. Duh....
If you can't find it in yourself to read your Freep critically, then, by all means, stick with your spoonfeeding method if it works for you and keeps things (and you) simple, but at least look at the company you keep and try to understand that you are aligning yourself with the low end of the IQ scale.
-Drew Sharp, hack extraordinaire
-Rosenberg, backwater sports journalist in an industry that is in steep decline, in no small part b/c of cowardly little faux exposes like the stuff he 'writes'
-every mouth breathing MSU/OSU fan that wants to take some cheap shots and spout out pretty much the same thing you did: 'RR iz a scumbag with no character...Feagin, NCAA, Dorsey, pacman brah! scUM sux dude!'
-every blue-haired, 'down-in-front' fan that shows up Saturday in maize and blue plaid pants and goes home all pissed because there isn't the normal amount of W in his football cup and wonders aloud 'why we ever started passing the damn ball anyway'? Then spends the rest of the week yelling 'get off my lawn!' and keeping the neighbor kid's baseballs.
...and understand that people that DO read critically, that understand the game of football and can see the foundation being put in place that will actually make the M a program that is competitive on a national level for the first time in 20 years, that also think people like you are dicks, will be aligned against you.....and don't go on their blogs and bait them.
has 40 wins in 2 years??
RR popped out of the womb and landed in AA right? Damn 2 year olds with their damn swearing and RAWK music!!
I think the general sentiment of any INFORMED follower of college football understands that these allegations could be found at nearly every FBS program.
That doesn't make it right, of course, but the consensus of the non-ignorant is that UM is getting a raw deal. If anyone is laughing, it's folks in SEC country who are miffed that UM will be facing punishment for what they consider trivial issues.
So I guess we all imagined it when Marcus Ray was ruled ineligible during the 1998 season for taking money from an agent? Or when rumors swirled about Charles Woodson taking money from an agent one month before the 1998 Rose Bowl? Or when Artis Chambers played despite being academically ineglible?
I love that it's somehow worse in your mind for RR's players to practice too long than for Lloyd Carr to repeatedly use ineligible players on the field. Nice bit of compartmentalization there.
when the bangee responds to 37 different posts, providing ample opportunity for down-vote goodness.
Don't shoo him away... it's the off-season. The board needs a little excitement.
World Record Breaking softness.
It was nice knowing you mgoblue1
Hopefully this kid choses the true champions of the west.
so I hope RichRod doesn't bring up the fact that USC is MONUMENTALLY more screwed than Michigan when it comes to NCAA investigations...
However, I also hope that someone tells him.
Here's to hoping Craig and Taylor will help Andre make the best decision for himself
And USC just pulled in Seantrel, so that can't hurt.
i hope you mean it can't hurt USC.
"Hey, Andre, want to play with the best offensive lineman in the country? We think you two would make a great team."
You know there is typically five linemen that start games, plus guys that rotate in, right?
Sentinel Henderson isn't going to time up ALL of the playing time at USC.
Ehhh I was more thinking from the tackle spot, because that's what he will probably be at the next level(unless there's something I don't know) and the fact that Seantrel will most likely take up one of those spots for 4 years.
Lane Kiffin's Hot Wife > Glen Mason's Hot Wife
I must say, I did not anticipate this thread playing out the way it has...
You can thank the Tom Hagan Twins for its rapid degradation.
I have magical powers tonight! Every time I down voted mgoblue1 his point value went down 5 to 8 points.
Well I just plussed you and this post went up by 3 points.
We're both magical tonite.
EDIT: I guess I should have actually watched this before posting it... fair warning... do NOT watch the last 8 seconds. :)
WARNING: I do not think this is a good song, just really really funny in how bad it is
What are these guys going to do if (I think when) RichRod starts winning? Are they going to keep calling him a db? I don't think so. Easy to denounce a guy when they're down...
I agree you should stick by your team as far as watching them and not spewing garbage about them all the time. However, it is ok to be objective about the team.
I'm just surprised because it came out of nowhere. These last few days have been quite strange here.
What makes you so sure Rich Rod is going to start winning? Must be his defensive coaching abilities
WTF, are you doing this just to be a dick now?
just because he hasn't been CONVICTED of any NCAA wrongdoings, he deserves other schools letting him beat them so he can keep his job.
are you from the Westboro Baptist Church? are you also going to tell me that god hates michigan and that we all deserve to die for supporting RR?
Actually I do in fact believe that God hates Michigan.. And no, nobody deserves to die for supporting a head football coach.
Oddly enough, this isn't even your worst post on this thread.
In addition to it not being his worst post, he probably would get up voted by many for the God-Hating part if he were not in fact, well, himself.
You must not know how to read. I've written way too many words on the subject of how good I think the defense needs to be in order for this team to roll. Anything near average D and we win 8+, book it.
I would agree with your prediction.. Problem is, an average D will not reside in Ann Arbor this fall
mgoblue1 will not reside on this board tomorrow
and act like they were there all the time, unfortunately.
Bandwagon fans always do.
Michigan football and... reality. We aren't very good. I like to see some positive things once in awhile... Where are those at? I hold Michigan to higher standards than beating MAC squads
1. Count to 5
2. Go find something else to do
3. Stop counting to 5
4. Don't come back
Then perhaps you should stop taking this doomsday approach and appreciate the upside of our football team. Perhaps you should recognize the growth that has occurred the last two years, and the fact that RichRod is building a FUTURE.
Have the last two years sucked? Yeah. But its the future that matters.
So as I was enjoying this amazing meltdown I thought of an interesting question I would like to ask. Both of these guys are making almost the exact same arguement, and backing each other up perfectly. Could they be the same person, with two different accounts or are the posts too close together. What are you thoughts? Two different trolls or the same person?
Who else has access to LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF COMPUTERS!!! MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA!
How could I have missed this connection before? Good call bouje.
"Zeke" was upvoting himself in the BooBoo thread with multiple accounts but not posting with them. Considering his meltdown last night and these today, I'm guessing there MIGHT just be a connection.
We were a laughing stock of college football when we lost to App State. You are not a laughing stock when you have a few bad years. EVERY SCHOOL has them. NOT every school was a pre-season top 10 team with a great cast of players and loses to a D-IAA school.
We were a laughing stock in Lloyd's last year (and great for him and the team that they turned it around in the end) but RR has done nothing to SULLY THE GOOD NAME OF MICHIGAN FOOTBALL that was not already done on that ONE FUCKING SATURDAY.
In sum: You both should DIE IN A FIRE!!! Or play in traffic. Or something else similar. (Yes I know I'm a terrible person and I'm going to hell my board etiquette is atrocious).
Fall on a knife. Damn this is stupid. Lloyds last year was much more of a disappointment than the last two. Number one overall pick, all time leading passer, all time leading rusher. We lose to Appy State? That is far more of an embarrassment than anything we've dealt with the last two years.
They find a way to make everything RRs fault and Lloyds a saint and was the perfect guy. He was a great guy but losing to App State should tarnish his legacy as a coach... Forever.
Whoops, double post
What pisses me off is that the same people who want RR fired and long for the days of Lloyd were probably calling for Lloyd's head the loudest. Some people will just never be pleased.
Wouldn't hanging with Demar's crowd for a day get the job done?
You are going to have one hell of a hang-over tomorrow.
#1 Drink lots of water tonight
#2 Put a garbage can by your bed
#3 wake up with a cup of coffee
#4 and a hot shower
#5 Drink lots of water
#6 Realize all of the stupid shit you did when you were pissed drunk.
#7 Realize that you had butt-sex "NewBallCoach"
#8 Let it all sink in
#9 Play in traffic
I would like to say I enjoyed your pulp fiction quote.
But traitors of our school deserve worse punishment than ignorant rantings of the media.
I can't believe one of the bulls that broke free from Ohio State's campus learned how to type.
Is that you?
After reading all of these negative posts, which started off rather innocent, it makes me wonder if this is the guy who has been going off all weekend. The multiple account avenger may well have been these last three blow ups. This is the craziest off season I have seen on this board since I began reading. So much anger.
Thats what I was thinking also. There have been a few meltdowns this weekend. I'm thinking it could be the same person. Most of them have recent sign-up dates.
Or the year that RR was brought in.. Those were turbulent times too my friend.
Goodnight all be back in a bit...
December 2007 was weirder than this. We were literally tracking flights to Ann Arbor to see if Kirk Ferentz, Jim Grobe and other coaching candidates would arrive.
Just posting this to hopefully get negged some more.. Since mgopoints are so awesome
read the 5 words under the mgoblog banner.
I 100% support the use of an online IQ test to screen these idiots from posting on MGoBlog...
Or anywhere online, really.
I'm gonna have to go ahead and sort of disagree with you on that one.
Thanks, you ruined it. Negging you isn't fun anymore.
I'm thinking this is a hijacked account more and more.
I think it is the Satanic Pink Floyd influence that got a hold of mboblue1. Thanks a lot Other Brian
So how about this Andre Yruretagoyena kid??? Seems to be some great debate on this thread about him......
We should just call him the Y- Factor to make it easier.
